Musing in March


"Strewe me the ground with 
Daffadowndillies
And cowslips and kingcups
And loved lillies"

~ Edmund Spenser, 1552 -1559

  1. They're pretty daffodils, very delicate looking. I'm still waiting on my container grown daffodils flowering, but the ones in the ground are blooming away.

    1. Thanks for your comment Jo. Funnily enough I've grown the same bulbs in a container too which have still to flower.

    1. Elaine they are narcissus 'Elka' which is a fairly recent introduction. It's the first time I've grown them and I'm already planning to plant more later this year. They are quite small and most pretty. Apparently the yellow trumpets fade to white which I'm looking forward to seeing :)

  5. That's a beautiful photo Anna. Love that lemony tinge. I will definitely keep my eyes open for that one here as I say every year I just don't have enough daffs!

  7. Beautiful daffs, so much nicer than the big, bright yellow ones!

  8. Very sweet little daffodils. And, as always, your poetry selections are swoon worthy. :)

  10. Like Pauline, I think these are nicer than the brighter yellow ones too.

All your comments are much appreciated and treasured. I wil try to reply to everyone who leaves a comment, but it may take me a few days, especially when I start spending more time in the garden and at the lottie. I know that you will understand :) I am sure that I will also visit your blog if I have not already done so. If you have any specific questions I will either reply to them here or you can email me at : thegreentapestry@gmail.com

Namasté
